Bidirectional asset transaction

+2 votes
The examples that I have read on this are about a single asset getting transferred from one peer to another. But in most asset transactions it's a bidirectional transaction - cash on one-leg and the asset on the other leg. How does one accomplish this on the block-chain?  I was trying to relate this to how a bitcoin exchange works (BTC to USD and vice versa) - which I presume is a solved problem. Is there any white-paper explaining how this works? Does Multchain support this today?

It's possible right now using the raw transaction interface, but alpha 5 will add new commands createrawexchange and appendrawexchange to make these 2-way transactions really easy to build.
